THE HOUSE OF SWEET DREAMS
Hi, and welcome! I'm Andrew, Glad you found my listing! Here is a list of all the useful info about my house:
**Pricing Fluctuates During Seasons/Holidays $35 is base price**
***This house is in typical New Orleans style; a "shotgun house" where some rooms share a door, so you will have us walking through the room at some point during your stay.***
"Le Peach Parlor" is decorated as an environment for you to feel welcome and at home. On your bed will be your own home made book of things to do, places to eat, amazing things to see, and everything you never knew existed here.
In the bedroom, you can control your own heating / cooling.
This listing is for a full sized loft bed with staircase, in the "living room".
You have privacy curtains in the loft for sleeping late and being more comfortable. There is plenty of storage space in the loft for your belongings.
I am totally flexible and available to accommodate any check-in or check-out times. However, for regularity sake I suggest:
Check in after 3pm
Check out before 11am
Also note that you're welcome to check in anytime after 3pm but Amanda sometimes works late and we can't guarantee the room will be clean until 6:30pm, but please come and make yourself at home :) take out the bikes, or lounge around, (if you're going to take a nap and/or you've checked in before the room has been cleaned, please message Andrew to indicate when we can clean) thanks again and see you soon!

Interaction with Guests
There are three rooms in the house, The two Air Bnb Rooms and My friend Amanda's room who lives in the front of the house and uses the front door (you use the side door to the right of the house.)
Amanda is simply a tenant whom you share the house with, if you need anything I am usually around or just a phone call away and am always available to provide as much guidance, or as much privacy as you desire. Think of me like your 24 hour concierge! I love to get to know people and give you a New Orleans experience that is relevant to what you want to see and do here, even things that you had no idea even existed...
The house is in the Historic "Esplanade Ridge" Close to the "French Quarter/Bourbon St." Downtown and the Historic Marigny Neighborhood/Frenchman Street
A quiet and safe neighborhood where we know all of our neighbors and everyone looks out for one another, with families and young entrepreneurs dotting the area with eclectic bars, eateries and shops. The house is just a few blocks away from the fairgrounds, coffee shops, several good restaurant, and a small grocery store. A couple more blocks and you (email hidden) John, The New Orleans Museum of Art and City Park! The Superdome is a 10 minute bike ride away and only 1 mile to the French Quarter down beautoful Esplanade Ave.
Commonly sought after attractions within 2 miles of the house are: Bourbon Street, Frenchmen Street, Superdome, French Quarter, Louis Armstrong Park, City Park, DBA, Cafe du Monde, French Market, Spotted Cat, Cafe Negril, Blue Nile, The Maison, Apple Barrel, Coop's Place, Mardi Gras Zone, Mimi's in the Marigny, All Ways Lounge, and the Bywater, Marigny, 7th Ward, and Treme neighborhoods.
I recommend using our Free bikes to get around the area, New orleans is a small enough city geographically you can get virtually anywhere by a short bike ride! there is also a Public bus up and down Esplanade ave (91 bus) that takes you down and along the north end of the "French Quarter"
*a note on the bikes:
The bikes are FREE so they are not the fanciest of rides. Mainly geared toward the travelers who are down for an adventure, and aren't expecting a Lexus, they're more like an old Toyota (strong guts, but moody) But we love them, they have their quirks, and they get a lot of use. Please, if you are not used to working with a used "get around town bike" than consider renting a bike from one of the many lovely rentals around town. (Gerkins, Bicycle Michaels, or Crescent City Bike Tours)
Other Things to Note
No pets please, Allergy concerns. thanks :)
I am totally flexible and available to accommodate any check-in or check-out times however, for regularity sake I suggest:
Check in after 3pm
Check out before 11am
(sometimes if there is an overlap, ie. early airport arrival, we can hold your bags until a previous guest checks out)
Please leave your keys on bed when you check out
I provide FREE bikes to all of our guests to borrow.
If you do borrow a bike, I provide you with a lock for your bike.
Please return the locks with the bikes.
and THANK YOU for staying with
The House of Sweet Dreams!
I didn't spend too much time at the house with only one night in New Orleans but the location is great! An uber was about $10 to bourbon street. The handbook was also very helpful about stuff to do. Not as clean as I would have liked but the room was cozy.
The street was nice and the neighbors were friendly. I felt very safe and it was always parking on the street available. I loved this room although you should know that there is no privacy in this room. It is smaller than the pictures and the only space you don't share is the loft bed where you can pull the curtains. The host is very nice and forthcoming. There is another person who lives here so be prepared to share the only restroom. Also your entrance is on the side of the house. At night it can be hard to get to your entrance but the exterior is well lit and the property is safe. Advice I have for those interested in this listing would be to make sure you have lots of outdoor activity planned. This room is great for those who plan to be active and just need the bed.
This was my first Airbnb experience and it was fantastic. The Peach Parlor was very cozy and everything was as described. The booklet was very helpful and I definitely will be coming back soon.
Really sweet and cozy space that was a great spot to relax between sightseeing during the day and going out at night. I loved the handmade guidebook too, it directed me to some amazing spots I never would have found on my own.
Street parking in this neighborhood was safe and there was always an open spot right near the house, which was nice.
Overall, my whole experience with the Peach Parlor was really easy and pleasant. I'd definitely stay here again.
L'arrivée à l'appartement s'est très bien passée. Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer Andrew, mais tout était bien organisé. L'appartement est calme et bien situé dans un quartier résidentiel. Les byciclettes étaient super pour visiter la ville en temps de chaleur. Quelle bonne idée, Andrew! Amanda devait passer par notre chambre pour aller à la cuisine/salle de bain, mais était très discrète. Merci pour ce beau séjour!
Clean house, great value.
Uber to French quarter is about $10 off surcharge time.
The bikes are not great but they are free so no real complaints, just don't plan any long rides
This was my first Airbnb experience, and it was excellent! The room was exactly as advertised, and the suggestions in the provided guidebook were on point. It's hot up in the loft, but if you're coming home late at night it's cooled off by then and there are fans and the AC works well. The cafe around the corner was great, and I especially loved the access to the bikes. It was my first trip to NOLA and I was pleased that the city was so bike friendly. If you plan on getting around at night on the bikes, bring a bike light as the free bikes don't have them. But hey, they're free and they got me all around town just fine. Use the bikes and go explore! I didn't meet Andrew, but Alicia who was taking care of the property was kind and helpful on the phone. Thanks for the great experience!
